Collection: ESSENTIAL OILS

“Aromatherapy is the ancient art of using pure, plant and flower essences to help restore vibrant health to body, mind, and spirit.”

Aromatherapy uses essential oils from plants in order to promote healing and wellness in the body, as well as in the home. Essential oils are the concentrated extracts from plant materials like barks, roots, peels, and leaves, which constitute the very essence of the plant. Plants have been used for their healing properties for centuries, and essential oils are widely used in many different aspects of life today.

rareESSENCE sources the finest quality essential oils available from around the world, working as closely with the plant farmers and distillers as possible. These oils are extensively tested by chemical analysis, gas chromatography and odor evaluation by an essential oils chemist. Each essential oil that we offer is pure, natural and undiluted (unless stated).

Use of Essential Oils in Everyday Life: Blend a total of 3 to 5 drops of essential oils in 10ml of carrier oil to make a blend suitable for most adults; halve the ratio for children, the elderly, convalescent, and women who are pregnant or nursing.

Bath: Dilute up to 8 drops of essential oils in a carrier oil or bath oil and stir into the bath water. Up to 6 drops of essential oils may be added directly to the running water, but this is not recommended with those essential oils which are irritants or for those people with sensitive skin.

Vaporizer: Use 6 drops of essential oils in an oil burner or diffuser to create a pleasant atmosphere.

Compress: Add 4 or 5 drops of essential oils to a bowl of warm or cold water, soak a clean cloth in the water and apply to the desired area.

Footbath: Soak feet for as long as possible in a bowl of warm or cold water with 4 or 5 drops of essential oil stirred in (preferably diluted in a carrier before being added).

Inhalation: With a towel over your head, lean over a bowl of just-boiled water with up to 4 drops of essential oils added – breathe normally for ten minutes. Use fewer drops for children and the elderly.

Try 2 drops of a relaxing essential oil (eg, Lavender) on your pillow at night to encourage restful sleep.

When studying or driving, add 2 drops of a reviving essential oil, like Rosemary or Peppermint, to a handkerchief or cotton wool ball and inhale occasionally.

Add several drops of essential oils to a spray bottle filled with water and shake well to create your own natural room spray – avoid polished surfaces and plants.
